Though I've been seeing several good scale-related victories lately (approaching 20 pounds gone!), today was great for a couple of non-scale moments:
~ This morning, my husband mentioned that I'm looking thinner. He's clearly known that I've been working out and watching what I eat, but he said this morning was the first time that he could truly see the changes happening. Must have been the shirt I was wearing or something. Anyway, like the brilliant man that he is, he pointed it out to me. Major brownie points earned!
~ This afternoon, we were at a couples' baby shower for some friends of ours--but we hadn't seen them in about three months or so. As the soon-to-be parents were greeting everyone, the dad-to-be gave me a hug and said, "Wow! What have you been doing?" I told him I was just working out more and eating better, and he said, "Well, whatever you're doing, you're doing it well!" Another brilliant man.
Also, just a good friend whom I have shared many a conversation about our mutual love of food and laziness.
It was really nice to hear compliments and to know that my hard work really is paying off--it totally motivated me to eat mindfully at the baby shower (I'm a sucker for finger foods, chips and dip, etc.) and to work out once we got home. I'm really hoping my coworkers will be able to see a difference once we head back to school in August.
